DDos attack knocks out Alldas.de – for good?

Homeless defacement mirror seeks brave ISP

Alldas.de, the well known defacement archive, is once again looking for a home after a deal to move from its ISP fell through in the wake of a debilitating hack attack.

Three weeks ago, Alldas was subjected to a week-long distributed denial of service attack which knocked the site - and its ISP Kvalito - offline.

Kvalito introduced filtering and the DNS record of Alldas.de was updated so that prospective hackers would be throwing attacks at the site against their local host instead.

Alldas.de's contract with Kvalito already on the point of expiry and worse followed when the ISP to which it planned to move dropped the hosting deal. This has left Alldas.de unavailable at a time of heightened interest in hacking activity.

Fredrik Ostergren, a spokesman for Alldas.de, told us the site was looking looking for a new hosting service, but he was far from optimistic. "I hope we will be back up soon but it looks dark," he said.

In June this year, Alldas.de weathered a Syn-flood attack that had a knock-on effect on Kvalito's other customers, throwing some of them offline. Alldas.de received its notice to quit.

At the time, Alldas.de made clear its requirements from a prospective future landlord.

The ISP should be able to handle a growing volume of traffic that has reached 300GB/month, deal with 10 flames per month about port scanning - though Alldas.de has offered to answer those on its own - and tolerate the occasional DDoS attack.

After Attrition.org decided to get out of the defacement archiving business this summer (when it decided it was too much hassle to continue as a hobby), Alldas.de became the main game in town. Interrorem.com and Safemode.org do record defacements but their service is not as comprehensive as that of Alldas.de.

Any ISPs out there keen to save Alldas.de's service can email them directly. ®
